"The Last Candle" as written by Andre Olbrich and Hans-juergen Juergen Kuersch....
Guardian, Guardian, Guardian of the Blind
Guardian, Guardian, Guardian of the Blind
Guardian, Guardian, Guardian of the Blind
Guardian, Guardian, Guardian of the Blind
Have you forgotten him

Far from the land
Where the sun is born
down in the wood "Caladon"
Do you know the place
where the light is never seen
and all the hopes are turned
by the final cry
Turned to Stone
Turned to Stone
Turned to Stone
Turned to Stone

Whispering tunes in the wind
all hopes are gone with the night
when the old man will never come back
remember his words and his songs
And we see the raven's flying in the distance
but no wizard's singing his song

Somebodies out in the night
I fly in time
The last candle will burn
there's hope for everyone
when the last candle burns high
oh it's time for life

The elves and gnomes have to hide
when the moon is showing it's face
and raging orcs will set their traps
and the forest will burn
they hate green trees
and love the dark
they don't understand
that they're caught and left alone
they feel the magic in the wind
they're just fear the old man's song
(solo: Kai)

Ref.: Somebodies...

Corrupted old gnom
betrayer of all
you know so much about all
what is your price?

GNOM:
"Too much, too much
you cannot pay with your silver and your gold
there's just a little chance to save the wizard's life
there's just a little chance for all you fools
now pay"
(lead: André)

And so I walk across the land
and hope to hear the wizard's song

Ref.: Somebodies... (2x)

Outro: Somebodies out there
I feel there's somebody
Somebodies out there
I feel there's somebody

    General CommentThis song, if I'm not mistaken, is about Dragonlance. More specifically, the War of the Lance. "Caladon" was a mystical forest in the Dragonlance universe. Although I do agree that the rest of the song would point to the Lord of the Rings. Probably just an allusion to Dragonlance, I found that an interesting thing to note.

    General CommentI also can relate this song to Dragonlance...mostly, about Fizban:

    when the old man will never come back
    remember his words and his songs
    And we see the raven's flying in the distance
    but no wizard's singing his song

    Fizban was believed to have died in the end of the first chronicles' book when saving Tas from a fall.


    The last candle will burn
    there's hope for everyone
    when the last candle burns high

    When all hope seems to be lost, Tanis and some others go and face the queen of darkness in the end of the third book in the chronicles, and there's a chapter called 'The Last Candle', where Riverwind and Goldmoon light a candle in a dark room at their departure.

    Only part i can't figure is the one about 'corrupted old gnome' that knows a lot and askes for sth to 'bring back the wizard', however Fizban comes back and visits, along with Tas, a gnomish city looking for some answers about the Dragon Orb...

    Dun know if I said sth wrong, long time I read the Dragonlance Books ^^'

    That's it :D

    General CommentI assume because of the elves, gnomes, orcs, and wizards that it is a story from tolkien, but i would love if someone would post what they think

    General CommentOh, one more thing I noticed today when listening to this song...
    When he says 'I fly in time' it remembers me of Caramon and Tas going back in time in dragonlance legends to save Raistlin's soul...another Dragonlance reference ^^

    General CommentActually the first guitar solo in the begining is one of the only few that their other guitarist Marcus plays not Andre, rather odd but it is true just watch the Imaginations through the looking glass DVD on this song you will see Marcus play the lead not andre.
